Baby Carriage

Hi everyone,

I saw this post on Scor-Pal


designed by Sue Berker using a 4 x 5 cardstock with an insert.

I had to try this as it was so cute.  Here is my version:

I added nuggets inside the carriage, and it took 8 nuggets to fill the carriage.  Although this was cute, I found it to be too finicky for me because if you are not familiar with the 15/16″ rule on the cutting board, you had to first figure out where 15/16″ lye on your cutting mat.  The hood was created using the largest scalloped oval nestabilities.  Then it was trimmed down (about 1/3 off the other side which wasted paper), and attached it with brads on both sides, and then the insert was added in to hide the backing of your brads.

As I was thinking to myself … how can I mass produce this for my upcoming craft shows … then it hit me, and the light bulb went on … our nugget box die.  Here is my modified version of the baby carriage:

I obtain the same concept but in a smaller version, and it is way easier.  The box assembled like 1-2-3.  The hood was made by the largest scallop nestabilities round, cut in half (no wastage as you would use the other half to make more) and it took only 4 chocolate nuggets!
